United States President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that his country has agreed to lower trade barriers with the European Union. Trump said he and European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker, who he met, would “work for zero tariffs, zero non-tariff barriers, and zero subsidies on non-auto goods”, BBC reported.

The two leaders also agreed to increase trade in the agricultural and services sector. The European Union agreed to import more American soya beans and natural gas.

“So we had a big day, very big,” the US president said in the White House, standing next to Juncker, The Guardian reported. He called the agreements a “new phase” in US-European Union relations.

The two sides agreed to “resolve” the steel and aluminum tariffs the US imposed in March. Both sides also agreed that no new tariffs will be imposed. The United States and the European Union also decided to work together to reform the World Trade Organization.

“I had one intention today, to make a deal, and we made a deal,” Juncker said. “We have a number of areas on which to work together.”

Trump later expressed his gratitude towards the European Union in a tweet. “Obviously the European Union, as represented by Juncker, and the United States, as represented by yours truly, love each other!” he said, with a photograph of the two leaders hugging.
